with california governor jerry brown. plus, cnn's dana bash looks at the grand old party and the new electral with republicans, former democratic congress john huntsman, cathy mcmorris-rogers, carlos gutierrez, and conservative activist gary bauer. i'm candy crowley, and this is "state of the union." >>> good morning from california. the state that led the tax cut revolution in the late 1970s, but this last tuesday voted to raise taxes. we'll talk to governor jerry brown later in the show, but, first, that fiscal cliff. those tax hikes and spending cuts scheduled take place at the end of the year unless congress acts. president obama and house speaker john boehner picked up where they left off in dualing public appearances where both sounded consillatory, but didn't seem to budge much. must add to the president's to do list one more thing. he needs a cia director after general david petraeus resigned admitting to an extramarital affair. joining me now is robert menendez, later chairman of the house homeland security committee. good morning, senator. it's good to see you. let me start out with
every experience in california. we voted for higher taxes in order to fund better education. and i think people are recognizing that fiscal sustainability has a newman rart and a deno, ma'minator. the numerator is about sustaining growth and paying debts. i think it's known that we need to establish both. it's not going to be a big jump, and i think richard is correct in reminding us this is a long haul, and let's focus on both the numerator and the denominator. >> the point steven has just made, and i will point out as well, you cannot have it both ways. you cannot remind us on the one hand that there is a $1.6 trillion deficit and on the other hand say we won't have tax raised. >> this is america. we've been doing that for 25 years. >> that's exactly the problem. you're going into the negotiations saying, ah, we've got to do something about it, but we won't raise tax rates. you can't do it. >> can i make a big point here, think about the cuts in tax and increases which did make t right? you look at the fiscal cliff. that's 7 trillion in ten years with no thought, no nuance, no kind of
risk of everybody in the world? >> so i would extrapolate from our own experience here in california. we voted for higher taxes in order to fund better education. i think people are recognizing that fiscal sustainability has a num rater and a denominator. the denominator is about growth, making sure can you grow living stands ardz and pay off debt. i think the realization is coming in that we need to optimize both and i think that our politicians will slowly get that. it's not going to be a big jump. i think richard quest is correct in reminding us that this is a long haul. let's focus both on the num rater and the denominator. >> the point, stephen, has just made and mohamme points out as well, you cannot have it both ways. >> right. >> you cannot remind us on the one hand that there's a $1.8 trillion deficit. but then immediately say we won't have tax revenues raised. you cannot have your cake and eat it, too. >> this is america! we've been doing that for 25 years! >> i know! >> that's exactly the problem. you know, going into the negotiations saying ahh! we have to do something ab

not basically in iowa. >> reporter: matters how california looks and how nevada and virginia looks. >> right. >> it is difficult for mitt romney to say this economy is in free fall, it is not. unemployment rate here is pretty darn good, 5.2%, the lowest in the country. the president won by ten points here in the last election, my question for you, sue, why isn't he locking it down? >> you know, we actually feel like we're locking it down, we have been locking it down for two years. >> i think she is selling you something, they are not locking it down. >> reporter: we found plenty of people in iowa who are not convinced. >> we can't sustain itself, you hear these big huge empires, countries are going bankrupt. it will be us. >> reporter: he doesn't think he has plans for the deficit. >> i don't think either side has plans for it. it becomes the lesser of two evils. >> reporter: kevin says he can't plan a 2013 budget and certainly can't hire. >> our customers are just slow. they're just not ordering. >> reporter: he says like him, they're frozen, waiting to see who wins the election and whethe
calls out of the blue of people who are stranded in places like california. they're asking, how can i get my vote in, i can't get back home? we give them the procedure and it seems to be working really well. there are hundreds of people who have been voting every day. we're open 8:30 to 4:30 today and tomorrow for anybody who can go to the county clerk and vote right there. >> is there an explanation as to how many people you think will not be able to vote who will not take advantage or not be able to take advantage of these new measures as a result of the storm? >> no, no one has figured out exactly how many. everybody is out there trying to get as many polling places open as possible, and the ones that we can't get open, we're moving them to another location and making sure there are signs, and people are trying to notify them through reverse 911. wherever we can, we're notifying as many people as possible where their new polling location is if we have to shut theirs down. >> so it sounds like you're pretty optimistic that all of those who were intending to vote will have the opport
and more of this. california tried it in 2010. was not successful. it will resurface in california. a lot more states will follow. >> they can get tax revenue from it. it's big money. >> big, big money. colorado and jeffrey marin is estimating colorado and washington will each bring in about $50 to $60 million in tax revenue and that's not only that. enforcement savings. $47 million you don't have to run down people. $74 million in colorado. $99 million being saved in washington. then as i was saying earlier there's all this potential tourism. denver, colorado. you have more -- >> the new amsterdam. >> in fact there's an area in denver that i did a lot of reporting from called ramsterdam. there's more dispensaries than starbucks. states are going to look at this much as many have looked at gambling and said hey maybe we can make some money. >> more pot than starbucks pap lot of what we hear about pot it's small business, individual farms. is it possible we could end up with big pot? >> you could. i mean, you think about the infrastructure that's already in the place with a lot of big agr
? >> you know, they definitely want him, you can see that. in fact, senator feinstein of california, who is head of the senate intelligence committee, wants him, is hoping that he would testify as early as friday. he was scheduled to testify this week. in fact, i believe it was thursday. that's not happening. but, you know, youf got two things. one is they believe that the information that he has, obviously, would be valuable. and, in fact, in some cases they would say crucial. the other thing is there are allegations by some republicans that the timing of his stepping down and all of his scandal is connected to the investigation. now that is surmisal on their part. that's allegations. there certainly is a lot of interest in getting him up there to tell what he knows. >> jill dougherty, reporting live for us this morning. >>> it has been eight months since the president has held a news conference at the white house. as you know, a lot has happened since then. attacks in benghazi, re-election, fiscal cliff we're getting very close to. white house correspondent brianna keilar joins us now.

people into jobs that are opening. there's a reason san diego, california is the human genome capital of the world. same deal, public, private, foundations, people working together. ever since the tea party took over the republican party -- >> boo! >> ever since the tea party took over the republican party, they say it's my way or the highway, we're right all the time. they've beat the distinguished republican senator from indiana, richard luger, their most important foreign policy spokesperson because he was attacked by his opponent for cooperating with president obama on national security. they're nominee actually said, i couldn't make this up, that his happiest day was when he was imposing his opinion on someone else and he wanted the people to send him to washington, so that he could have more partisanship in washington, d.c. now if you want it, you can have it. the people of indiana don't want it, congressman joe donnelly his opponent was ahead by 11 points in the most recent polls, you're going to change that. but it will all be for naught if you reward him by not electing presi
chief of berkeley in california and also the first leader of international chiefs of police. right after the end of alcohol prohibition in the 1930s, he said that managing drugs in our community is an issue for health. it is not one to be solved through law enforcement. this is nothing new. there are many reasons to end marijuana prohibition in this country and i'm glad that voters in colorado and washington stepped forward. this has been on the president's plate ever since he's been in office and it's time for him to deal with it. >> you were on the front lines for many years in the war on drugs, but i understand a tragic accident of a fellow officer changed your life. is that when you decided that drugs should be legalized? >> that was the real turning point for me. matter of fact, just a few miles from where i sit here in washington, d.c., he was assassinated making an undercover drug buy working with the fbi. and that was the turning point for me. it made me really see how violent our community had become because of the prohibition of drugs like marijuana. and it's time -- >> are you

two states in the nation actually explicitly permit pornography to be filmed, and that's california and new hampshire, of all places. >> so new hampshire would be the place where they would amscray? they would have a long flight. >> that's right. that's right. the industry does say that they would like to perhaps go to nevada, but nevada's state supreme court actually hasn't explicitly ruled that pornography can be filmed there. >> huh. so, ron, they want to -- the industry before it pulls up stakes and moves the entire, you know, show across the country, they want to actually sue about this ballot measure. my question is -- i'm not going to suggest for a moment that you know all the legal ins and outs, but do they have merit in actually launching a suit, and if they are successful, what does that mean to the voters of california who have said that they feel it's important to have a safe work environment? >> well, the porn industry says that, you know, this measure violates their first amendment rights to film -- to, you know, produce their film the way they want to. now, the aids a

in california. what happens if the court decides not to hear this one? >> it is tricky, don, because first of all, nothing is simple to the supreme court. it depends what the court does. the court could formally reject that case, which means the lower court ruling stands, so for proposition 8, a federal appeals court already ruled that the ban which passed as a referendum by the way is unconstitutional. so the supreme court rejecting the case would basically make same sex marriage legal again in california. this is another big point, though, the supreme court could simply decide just to sit on the case, not hear it this term, not reject it either and that basically would put the decision off to a later date. and then at that time, california would just sort of be stuck in a legal limbo until the court makes a decision. >> all right. so we'll just basically what you're saying we'll have to wait and see what happens on this one, right? >> yeah. >> several cases deal with doma, the defense of marriage act, is what we're talking about. what is at the heart of those cases and how likely is it t

. back in the '60s, i remember california trying to pass a referendum that would legalize housing discrimination. so we've got a long way to go in this. and so, you know, for proponents of the issue who say, you know, we're at a turning point, we're at a turning point. as a historian of the african-american civil rights struggle, i frequently remind people that, hey, turning points can take decades. we don't measure turning points in a matter of days, weeks, months. we measure turning points in many instances in a manner of decades. brown v. board of education was a turning point, but it took another 20 years in my neck of the woods. i'm down here in memphis. it took another 20 years to actually start desegregating the schools. so we've got to be very mindful of what -- we've got to be very mindful of in terms of how we're framing the issue, in terms of how we're categorizing these turning points. because again, turning points can take a while. >> professor charles mckinney, pleasure to have you on this morning. thank you. >> thank you. >>> if you travel and you like local food, y
